Smolt fence and adult counting to gauge success of ongoing egg planting in the Rennie’s River

Recipient: Salmonid Association of Eastern Newfoundland
Approved Amount: $23,335
Year Approved: 2017

The smolt fence is part of an ongoing project to reintroduce salmon back into the Rennie’s River watershed. We have been planting eggs in the river for the past 5 years. Last year we counted 115 smolts via a smolt fence. This project will continue to count outgoing smolts for 3 years and returning adults for 2 years. Additional tasks will include a watershed plan which will contain long term strategies beyond 2020.
